What a great way to while away a half an hour before we left this wonderful city. Hot chocolate with a great view over the rooftops, you can see it all including the Duomo and mountains beyond. An oasis of calm away from the bustling streets below. Pleasant service and rich chocolate. Heaven! Recommended.

The food is so so, but the Aperol Spritz are good and the view is great. So it is definitively worth coming just for a drink. You might have to wait a little for a table though.

We would never have found the place had our tour guide not recommended this hidden gem to us. It's a very small terrace restaurant located on the 5th floor of La Rinascente department store at the Piazza della Repubblica with views of the Piazza and Duomo. After our four hour walking tour by Private tours of Tuscany (which I highly... More

Was recommended this gem of a place by our bus guide, told us to keep it quiet and can see why. The access is through the main store, onto the top floor. There are inside and outside table but it is a must to sit outside with the magnifent view ove the city and to the dome of the Cathedral.... More

Get away from the crowds and enjoy nice food with spectacular views. I had the gnocchi with pesto and shrimp which was excellent. My wife had rice with tomato and feta which was only ok. Highly recommended.

The Caffe La Terrazza has terrific views of the Duomo. We had to pay as soon as our drinks arrived (don't know if we looked like we were going to do a runner). We went late afternoon and it was still very busy. People who were waiting were rudely pushing past those who were seated at tables by the edge... More

This sits on the 5th floor of La Rinascente, a department store in Piazza della Repubblica. We got there around 11am and sat under the shade of a large umbrella drinking coffee and soft drinks and eating some wonderfully light cakes. Best of all, the views towards the Duomo and Bell Tower were amazing. Great place to relax in Florence.... More

Friends recommended we go to this café on top of Rinascente department store for a drink and the view. We had never noticed the café on prior trips and it is absolutely a great place to have a glass of wine, appetizers (we had a cured meat and cheese plate) and enjoy the view.

We decided to pop up to the 5th floor for a look at the view. An Americano coffee, glass of white wine and a medium sandwich later we had taken a few pictures and left very happy!

We were passing by the department store La Rinascente and noticed that they had a terrace cafe. We had visited La Rinascente in Milan which had a great view of the Milan Cathedral. We visited the terrace cafe and found it had a wonderful view of the Duomo and Giotto's tower. There was only one other person there when we... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
